Kia Ora Bill, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you here again one day soon!

Fantastic Family Fun

Our family loved this walk and boat ride combo. The walk was breath taking and the views were beautiful along the way. The path was well maintained and easy. Having the different bus stop options is an awesome alternative to walking the whole track. We really enjoyed the boat trip and the information about the crater, terraces and Mount Tarawera was so fascinating. Our skipper was friendly , chatty and spoke very well. Cheers team !

Over priced and underwhelming

Nice nature walk for a bit of exercise. But the fact you have to pay so much for it makes it very underwhelming. The boat ride barely has anything interesting to look at. Timing wise everything works really well. No waiting around for the boat or bus which was very impressive and made the experience tolerable. Staff are all amazing and the path is well maintained and really easy to walk on. But again… the price seems ludicrous. Perhaps if the boat ride offered a swim it might be more interesting.

Really worth a trip

We went here for first time and were not disappointed. The walk was really nice with so many locations to see on the way to the jetty. Only downside was they need to upgrade the boat as the viewing deck was small and also they need more food and beverages selections when they upgrade the boat. Otherwise its must visit site when in Rotorua. Its really flat and easy walk.
